Annie Duke began her rise to fame in the mid-1990s when she moved to Las Vegas and began playing Poker professionally. Over the course of the next decade, Duke established herself as one of the best poker players in the world. In August 2004, she won $2 million in the No-Limit Texas Hold'em winner-take-all, invitation-only WSOP Tournament of Champions, established by ESPN and Harrah's Entertainment.
